February 24 | Silvo-what?: Exploring Opportunities for livestock with Silvopasture Management
Silvopasture is an agroforestry practice that involves intentionally managing livestock, trees, and forage in the same productive space. There are several strategies to implementing silvopasture, and the wide variety of strategies depends on the space, animals, and trees being managed. During this webinar, Ashley Conway, PhD, PAS, assistant research professor at the University of Missouri Center for Agroforestry, will provide a brief introduction to silvopasture management.
